How to Get the Magnum – Resident Evil 7: Biohazard
There are quite a few weapons available in Resident Evil 7, some of which contain a lot of stopping power and are capable of taking out an enemy quickly, even on higher difficulties. One such powerful weapon is the 44 MAG, a magnum handgun that has an incredible kick, but can one shot most enemies if hit in the head – unlike a regular handgun which can take upwards of five shots depending on which gun and which enemy.
Thankfully, how to get the magnum is actually shown to you relatively early on in the game. After finally getting out of the main house, you’ll find a trailer in the courtyard where you can save your game and store items. All the way to the right of the room, near the television, is a birdcage with the magnum sitting inside. In order to unlock the cage, you’ll need nine of RE7’s Antique Coin collectibles. They’re scattered around the world – some out in the open and some well hidden – so you’ll need to keep your eyes open. Just grab nine through your journey and turn them in for your brand new magnum.
Do note that the magnum takes up two item slots, twice the amount of the other standard handguns. Also, ammunition for this particular gun is very rare, even when playing on Easy. If you go for it on Normal or Madhouse, make sure to only use it on the absolute strongest enemies and bosses. You can also find some ammunition for the 44 MAG through the Toilet Treasure Photo.
